I've been wanting to go to away games for awhile and don't know anything about going through with it. Are there uconn tickets or do i have to buy them and sit in the home teams section and things like that... I want to go to Gtown, Nova and Cuse... anyone have any experience going to away games?

You can get them through the UConn ticket office if you want the UConn section tickets

My roommate was looking into tickets for the Providence game this year and he said the UConn tickets for away games have something to do with donor priority? I'm not sure how difficult that makes it for non-donors to get tickets through Uconn

I could be wrong on this, since I haven't gone to one, but knowing our fanbase, I don't think there'd be huge demand for regular season away games.

We have a party of 10 going to the St Pete Times Forum for the USF/UConn game

That game is always UConn fan-friendly

I've been to numerous UCONN/Nova games in the last 20+ odd years, and their fanbase seemingly gets worse each time......doesn't matter if it was at DuPont Pavilion or the Wachovia Center, absolute tools, young, old, male, female, didn't matter.
In all of my road game experiences, hands down, the WORST fanbase of them all. Just keep your eyes open, they like to target you, and your vehicle, if it has ANY visual UCONN support, as well as any apparel you may wear. For a bunch of Catholics, they certainly act more like convicts

I've been going to away games for the men and women for years, if you're lucky and they're not playing at MSG you might find really, really good seats right on top of the action. Though in the past couple of years I must say that luck has been elusive.

When is the game? Maybe we can get a few people to go from ATL. I am sure I can get tickets for us.

The wife and I will be heading from Raleigh to Knoville on Friday morning and staying the weekend. It would be nice if other uconn fans could meet up for food and drinks sometime before the game on Saturday.

I got my tickets from stubhub and paid about $45 each for them. We're in Section 321, Row 12, seats 1 and 2

Scott, the game is on Sat 1/21 at 4PM. I have a couple possible connections I'm working on, but they are UT connections. I know yours are better. Let me know.

I will check with my family and see what they can do- I have no plans that far a head so I'll touch base with you after I talk to them.

I looked for seats a couple weeks ago and they were way overpriced for where they are located. If somone can get good seats for a good price I'm down on going also. ATL Husky I will text you man. Sorry I haven't reaced out as I bad at that sometimes. For whatever reason I thought the game was Monday and I couldn't go but a Saturday is perfect for me.

I have all 3 KW Jersey's now(Blue, White and Grey) and JL's white so I'm set for representing. LOL.

Too bad S. FL game is middle of the week but that might actually work as I should be back in the ATL morning of the 27th coming back from CT for X-MAS. I didn't want to take that day off but hey Tamp in December sounds nice.

Anyone try to get Providence tickets on Ticketmaster? They're currently unavailable - not sure if they're sold out or Providence is holding the tickets to keep UConn fans from buying them.

About going to road games - I've been to Cuse (twice), Nova (Wachovia/ Center - 3 times), St. John's, BC, Providence, UNC, BE Tourney and UMass. The only time me or my group ran into any issues was at the Carrier Dome - I had a friend get a beer dumped on his head and I got in a shouting match with a guy. I never had issues at Nova games.

Where are your seats? I'll be arriving in the Tampa - St Pete area about that time. The only seats I can find are on Stubhub and they look overpriced. I went to a Women's game there a couple of years ago and ended up in a UConn section - don't remember how I did that.

i'll be at ND given the close proximity to Chicago. It's a great place to watch a game - the entrance reminds me of a high school gymnasium.

agreed - the dome is a tough place to go as an away fan. never personally been involved with any skimishes but defiintely seen alot of them.
